Billingsgate is a very popular fish market located near Canary Wharf. On Tuesday 30th December, Charlie Casey, a very successful retired fishmonger, and Paula Williams, the school’s co-ordinator came to visit the Evelina School. Charlie showed many different fish giving us facts about each one like where they lived in the sea and how they are caught. He showed us many different fish, such as the parrot fish, mackerel, and plaice. He also showed us how to fillet and skin a plaice and mackerel. One useful tip he told was that each and every fish in the sea has a faint line running across both sides of the fish’s body. They use it as ears. After showing us about six fish Paula came and demonstrated a quick recipe for fish fingers, using a fresh coley they’d brought from the market earlier that morning. Then she brought out some prawns and we all had a go at peeling them. We enjoyed ourselves and are very thankful to Paula and Charlie for taking time out for us!

    Nice work Pinkhairband. I was impressed at how you were able to edit your own work.
    And thank-you Charlie and Paula for coming in.

    It was lovely to see Charlie and Paula at the Evelina again. I was sorry that some of our regular students were too ill to attend on that day, as they would have enjoyed a ‘visit with a difference’. Charlie, Paula and the students made up a delicious range of fish foods for all of us, and the staff – many of whom are ‘fish friends’ – were pleased to have had such lovely treats for their lunch!

    Until next time, Charlie and Paula
